Cape Cod Shanty

Wiki article on Sea Shanty

 

Lyrics:

D
Cape Cod girls ain't got no combs
                A7
Haul away, haul away
D
They brush their hair with codfish bones
                                             A7   D
And we're bound away for Aus - tra - lia

     G          Bm7       D
So heave a-way, me bully, bully boys
                          A7
Haul away, haul a-way
G             Bm7     D
Heave her up and don't you make a noise
                                             A7   D
And we're bound away for Aus - tra - lia

Cape Cod kids ain't got no sleds
They slide down the hills on codfish heads

Cape Cod girls ain't got no frills
They tie their hair with codfish gills

Cape Cod cats ain't got no tails
They lost them all in the northeast gales
